Gisèle Prudence
Gisèle is a 37-year-old woman and the mother of three children between the ages of 15 and 6. She has opened a mini-restaurant in one of the neighborhoods of her city, and she has been running her business for one year, serving "taro" (a traditional Cameroonian dish).

Gisèle is a wonderful cook with a warm welcome, and she has managed to attract an increasingly large group of customers. The loan that she is requesting will allow her to increase her stock of basic supplies: taro leaves, macabo (a tropical tuberous plant), bananas, as well as her inventory of sanitary drinks (juices, beer, mineral water). These purchases will allow her to meet the needs of her customers and to increase her profits.

Part of her profits will be reinvested into her business, while the rest will be used to meet the needs of her family.
